SEFW Fall Forum: "Bridging Washington"

Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 5:00pm

The Structural Engineers Foundation of Washington
10th Annual Fall Forum

The 7,300 bridges in Washington state are full of stories. Some are stories of history and culture, necessity and politics, or the challenges and marvels of engineering. Learning these stories connects communities more closely to the built environment and honors the design, engineering, and legacy of these signifi cant spans. For the 10th Annual Fall Forum, the Structural Engineers Foundation of Washington is honored to host Maureen Elenga, local historian, and John Stanton, PhD., professor of civil engineering at the University of Washington, to present an educational evening showcasing bridges in Washington. Ms. Elenga will share the cultural, quirky, and even surprising histories of several local bridges, while Dr. Stanton will reveal engineering mysteries to bring them to life for the technical observer. The event will be of interest to designers, engineers, students -- and anyone who travels over bridges.
